I have landed in Calgary and am enjoying the cooler weather - today the high was 15 - feels like winter - LOL - just kidding- actually no, I am not - it is the same temp here as it is in Alex in the winter - only difference is that there is heat in the homes. Today has been rainy, with sunny patches. Made a quick trip to Wal-Mart and Safeway - quick because Miles was with me - and unless you are shopping for him - you best be hustling. Oh well - soon enough I will get out on my own and wander through Wal-Mart.

The flights were uneventful - slept most of the way to Frankfurt - and I am not sure why they insist on waking me up to eat on the trip to Calgary - do I look like I need to eat - just let me sleep. Only fly in the ointment was that the video system did not work very well - they finally got things worked out about 3 hours before we landed in Calgary - so we got vouchers - should see what I will get - an upgrade to business class next time I travel - not likely - but sure would be a treat - I look at the seats in business class and wish I had lots of money - that is the way to travel on long trips.

Not sure what my plans are as of yet. Had planned on heading to Ontario before the start of Ramadan - but on checking seat prices found that there is a seat sale starting in September - so may just end up heading out then. Maybe I will head up to Edmonton next week - still not sure - need to make some phone calls and check an email - a friend of mine is travelling - want to make sure she is back in town before I head that way.

Talked with Mom last night and she is feeling better now than she has felt in many months - thank God. I am very grateful for all the prayers that were said on our behalf.

Not much more to report right now - hope I can get some sleep tonight - my legs have been cramping - kept me awake for a bit last night - am heading to the gym tomorrow morning - to visit and work out.

I hope you enjoy your trip back in Canada. It's always nice to come home to what is familiar. I have lived in Missouri away from my parents for over 25 years. Yes, it's true my Dad has since passed, and I did move my Mom nearby. I had her for the last 10 years of her life. I wouldn't take anything for the time we enjoyed. I miss coming home to Mum. I guess the feeling never ceases to loose your parents.
